Additional Information

This anti-president Richard Nixon button features a slogan commonly used by the George McGovern campaign in the 1972 presidential election. McGovern served as a Democratic Representative and Senator from South Dakota and is remembered for being a “die-hard liberal” whose main goal was to achieve world peace. McGovern warned against involvement in Vietnam in 1963, proposed a $4-billion reduction in the U.S. defense budget, and supported the war on poverty. President Nixon was originally elected in 1968, and was running for a second term in 1972 when he beat McGovern in a landslide with 60.7% of the popular vote.
